In winter, lips can become dry and chapped and in need of extra TLC.
To maintain soft, healthy lips during the cooler months, regular application of a quality lip balm will moisturise and nourish – with the added bonus of optimising the length of lipstick colour and prevent creasing.
Lip balm ingredients have become more sophisticated and now include SPF for sun protection and enhanced with nourishing ingredients such as bees wax, jojoba oil, cacao, macadamia nut oil and olive oil.
If you prefer a natural approach to skincare, there a range of good-quality organic, vegan and natural brands that are chemical and cruelty-free.
